It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident.

Course Description

In this online course, the viewer will learn about Houdini starting with the basics. The course will focus on modeling as a way to quickly feel comfortable with Houdini's UI and workflow. We'll work on our first project which will consist of not only modeling Iron Man's Arc Reactor with great detail and nice topology for SubD but also lighting, shading and rendering a photorealistic image of your model.

This course has been designed for absolute beginners which means we'll be starting from scratch and progressively get into intermediate level concepts and methods, including some VEX.

After viewing this course, people can expect to feel completely comfortable modeling Hard Surface in Houdini, as well as lighting and shading with Mantra. You'll also be able to write short code wrangles and expressions that will give you a lot of control over the manipulation of data be it geometry, shaders, etc...


The workshop week by week


Week 1: Introduction to Houdini

In this first week we’ll start by talking a bit about hardware and software for working with Houdini. Next we’ll discuss the concept of Proceduralism and some of the features that make Houdini so unique.  

Then we’ll dive into Houdini and start familiarizing ourselves with the UI and Navigation as well as the basic principles and workflows of Houdini. 

Finally we’ll talk a bit about our main project - the Arc Reactor - and we’ll start preparing the elements you’ll need to start modeling on week 02.


Week 2: Modeling in Houdini

This week will be all about modeling. We’ll go through different operators to model each piece of the Arc Reactor: PolyExtrude, PolySplit, PolyBevel, Transform, PolyEdit, Sweep; which are the main tools that you will use for all your future models. 

In the process you will  gain confidence about working in Houdini. The methods we’ll be exploring this week will be very simple and accessible but will become more complex as we progress. 


Week 3: Advanced Modeling

This week we’ll be diving into some more complex notions that are essential to master advanced modeling techniques making use of operators like  CopytoPoints, CopyStamp and ForEach Loops  which we’ll use on the little pieces that repeat themselves throughout the model, so we have total control over their position and orientation making sure there is always a bit of variation among them. This will require us to go through some basic vector math which is valuable knowledge that can be applied in many different contexts besides modeling.

With these new concepts you’ll gain a lot of control over your model and we’ll take our Arc Reactor  all the way to the completion.


Week 4: UVs and Rendering the Arc Reactor

Having finished the Arc Reactor model, it’s now time to give it some UVs, apply some shaders, light our scene and render.

We’ll have a look at the different options we have for generating UVs and laying them out in Houdini, from fully automatic to fully manual.

We’ll learn the basics of working with Mantra, which is a powerful and extremely robust render engine, perfectly integrated in Houdini and its workflow. Besides learning the basic principles of lighting, we’ll make extensive use of the Principled Shader as our go to material to quickly shade our model and give it a realistic look.

 We’ll be covering many different topics that will allow us to finally cash in the reward for all our work by producing some great final images.

This final week will be intense but it will be worth it.
